Sneak Peak!

Friends and family,
We are down to needing $2,500 for our second trip to Ethiopia... praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!

Help us meet our goal - 



Some new items! Winners will be drawn for these items on Tuesday, July 6th - 
1. GRACE print (center painting is on canvas, this is a 18"x 24" signed print of original):
Grace - the most beautiful word in the world. To understand its power, you need only look at someone who has experienced its fullness. God’s grace is redemptive. It understands the messiness of our lives, and is offered to each and everyone of us. It heals and restores us. Grace is a gift of unmerited favor. It is like a priceless work of art. 

...God said, “My grace is sufficient for you...” 2 Corinthians 12:9

Artwork inspired by grace-filled moments, featuring the work of Courtney Nowakowski and the Austin Christian Fellowship Creative Arts team.
2. Faith, Hope, Love & Family WOMEN's t-shirt (this is not a boxy tee, but also not real fitted - VERY comfy):

  2. Hi Christi! I'm not sure how I have missed this- but I'd like 6 of my entries to go to the pitter patter Africa shirt and 6 to the faith hope and love shirt. :-) oh and by the way- what is a key fob?! Is that like a key chain? Whatever it is- they're cute!

  3. I hope I did that right. I donated 10.00 for 12 raffle tickets. I'd like 6 for the Grace print and 6 for the Lifesong Adoption shirt. I linked to your site from "It's Almost Naptime" Good luck raising the rest of your funds. We are a foster to adopt family, so I love to see little babies finding homes!
